I suppose we'll know in a day or two. Also, it turns out that one of MrsG's friends was up all night Sunday sick, which is a pretty amazing coincidence given they had lunch together over the weekend, and it's the only meal MrsG didn't eat with the family all weekend. Fortunately, MrsG didn't actually end up getting sick, despite feeling like hell all day yesterday. I'm hoping this will help protect the little man and me from sharing in her misery. Speaking of the little man, he seems to be doing alright. I think his gunkiness is/was just leftover from the cold he had last week, but we'll see.
I've been reading a lot about the nasty norovirus strain that's been going around, and, with a little one in daycare, I've pretty much assumed it will hit my house at some point this year. Still, I really really
don't want it to be this week. I'd even take being sick on the weekend if I can just get through Friday feeling healthy.

And this week is really a week where I have no margin for missing time. Hoping this sniffle I have doesn't get feverish like it did for the kid. Who, of course, had to sleep in our bed last night
I saw your post on FB, and I was wondering how you all were doing. Whatever LowerCaseG had got to him, too, and he's like your little one - illnesses don't really bother him.
I hope you and the wife manage to beat back the illness!

Couldn't help but feel powerless as she just sat there sobbing. Great coworker too...works hard, very responsive, helped me get settled into the position.
Just made my Monday that much crappier.
Oof. That's horrible. Sorry to hear it.

Haha. I actually considered making this joke to MrsG. I did not think it would go over well, so I refrained.
